About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified EMDR Therapist. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice at Shippensburg University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and as the Distinguished Military Graduate. I served six years as a Commissioned Officer in the US Army and later spent eleven years in the private sector employed by behavioral health companies. I earned a Masters in Social Work from Temple University, entered private practice and practiced traditional talk therapy including cognitive behavioral interventions, marriage and relationship counseling, family counseling, group therapy, and EMDR therapy.​

I later spent two years working as a therapist and administrator for an International Mission agency based in the UK. While living, traveling and working in fourteen countries on five continents, I gained experience with mental health interventions across cultures in treating trauma, depression, anxiety and PTSD. ​

I am now employed full time as an executive for the US Department of Veterans Affairs serving as a Director in the Veterans Health Administration's Employee Education System. In 2018 I became a Senior Executive Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. I am honored to serve our nation's Veterans as I am also a Veteran myself and use VA exclusively for my own healthcare. I continue my clinical practice virtually from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania serving clients all over the United States and around the world, having treated clients on every continent so far except Antarctica!

Written by E.R. on Oct 14, 2019 after counseling with Keith for 6 months on issues concerning family conflicts

Keith is extremely supportive and very attentive. When I stop making appointments he drops me a message, which is very motivating to continue working on myself. He helps me to see the underlying problems and walks me through them. I am very grateful for his support.

It’s amazing how beneficial therapy is. The EMDR sessions with Keith have enabled me to reclaim my power and control over my own life. As a result of my work with Keith I went from too scared and anxious to leave the house with crippling panic, to being able to enjoy walks with my husband in the park, garden and we have even traveled by plane, and train. I’ve been able to leave some toxic relationships that weren’t serving me, and now feel equipped to not only face life but to enjoy the richness and fullness of it. I highly recommend Keith as a counselor and the EMDR sessions.

Keith was very knowledgeable and experienced therapist. At first I was hesitant to open-up but as our sessions went on, I felt more comfortable and trusting in discussing my issues. He is very accommodating, patient and sincerely helpful in answering all my queries. I am extremely grateful that he guided and redirected me towards achieving my goals.
